The Philadelphia Eagles currently have the 4th best defense in the National Football League and will bring their athleticism and fire to Heinz Field Sunday afternoon to take on the Steelers. As we have seen with few exceptions so far in the 2012 season, there really isn’t a truly dominant defense to be found.
The Eagles run a 4-3 defense which isn’t exactly typical in terms of their front four. They use what is called a ‘wide nine’ technique which moves their defensive ends well outside of the last man on the line. For example, in a single tight end set, Jason Babin would line up a good yard or so outside of the tight end. On the opposite side, Trent Cole would be a yard outside the tackle.
The idea of the wide nine is to give defensive ends the opportunity to essentially take a sprinter’s stance and be angled inwards. This would allow the ends to get a tremendous amount of speed and either use that speed to get past blockers or build up tremendous momentum in order to push the bloc...

If you’re a regular follower of us here on SA then you know that not only do we have our blog, and the forums but we also have an extensive display of Steelers wallpaper and other downloads. So we figured as something fun, why not do a Wallpaper of the Week, and showcase one of the many downloads available.
We all enjoy having the Steelers on our desktops and laptops; it just makes...
Based on their participation during Monday’s practice,
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin expects safety Troy Polamalu,
linebacker James Harrison and running back Rashard Mendenhall to return this
week against the Philadelphia Eagles:
“Based on what I am looking
at on how we worked yesterday I think that is a safe assessment,” said Tomlin
On the night when former Eagle Brian Dawkins was honored, the Philadelphia Eagles took down the arch rival Giants, 19-17 behind a strong defensive effort. The Eagles bounced back after an embarrassing loss to Arizona last week, which shows the true heart and determination of this team. What is more impressive is that the Eagles have won all three of their games by scoring on their...
The Philadelphia Eagles are 3-1 and lead the NFC East, but it hasn't been easy. They have been outscored by 17 points this season, they've turned the ball over far too often, and they've had to battle through injuries. Here is your Eagles injury report:
According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, Michael Vick suffered a knee contusion in yesterday's win. Andy...
The Steelers have been without linebacker James Harrison for the entire regular season so far and safety Troy Polamalu has been out since week one. Both players fully practiced on Monday and it looks like Polamalu will at least have a very good chance at playing this week against the Eagles.
With nothing certain, Harrison made it clear that he’s hopeful he’ll be on the field...
The Three Stooges or the Three Wise Men?
For the 5th time in the Andy Reid era, the Philadelphia Eagles are off to a 3-1 start after the first quarter of the season. Usually, a 3-1 start is cause for excitement and confidence as we head into the meat of the schedule.
However, this is perhaps the diciest-feeling 3-1 I've ever felt in all my years of following the Eagles.
Over a week ago my wife and I were watching the Pittsburgh Steelers lose to the Oakland Raiders. During the action the camera cut to the sideline and a shot of the dejected Steelers' Head Coach Mike Tomlin."He looks just like Omar Epps," my wife said. I sigh as I agree with her and remind her I have been telling her that for a while now. Finally, at that moment,...
I will never be the one to say any regular season matchup with the Steelers is predictable...but the Eagles have a terrific chance to go into Game 5 of the 2012 season with Pittsburgh and set the tone for a playoff run.
You may say it's too early to begin speaking of playoffs ("Playoffs! Are you kidding me!!), but to come out of Heinz Field this Sunday with a "...
He is only 9-years-old, but this kid already is doing his best to emulate members of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Detroit Lions with his play. Check out #11, the big kid. He was suspended a game for his dirty play. How often does a youth football player get suspended for dirty play? His coach [...]
The Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) beat the New York Giants (2-2) 19-17, last night at Lincoln Financial Field from Philadelphia, PA.
What a heartbreaking loss for the New York Giants as Lawrence Tynes missed the potential game winning 54 yard field goal which felled short of the goal post at the end of the game.
The blame obviously goes to Ramses Barden who was called for offensive...
